miracles do happen.

December 31, 2010 § 1 Comment

Evidently it’s time for me to go back to work because I have too much time on my hands.

Nevertheless, I’ve been eyeing this skirt since September and received a dangerous email this morning from J.Crew that their sale is 30% and free shipping if you spend over $150. This little gold skirt has been on sale for a while, but they have never had my size. C’est la vie. And even though their sale goes on sale about every other day, I went over and had a looksie… Because I have too much time.

Behold. The little gold skirt is now available in two sizes, one of which is mine!

But this free shipping business must be utilized. So, being the savvy shopper that I am, I quickly accumulated enough stuff in my cart from the Factory, which has the same promotion but is not final sale like the regular store is. Meaning, I can return those things once they have served their aquisitionofreeshipping purpose. { Side note: See, this whole final sale business at the regular store is their catch to get people like me who went to college for four years in College Station and got adept at buying clothes online, spending enough to finagle free shipping, then returning the excess in Austin}

Anyway. I had too much time on my hands then too.

All that to say, this triumphant morning, I scored my skirt for half off the original price, with free shipping.

Thanks for sharing in my victory of patience over full prices and shipping costs.
